A new devotion will be posted every Monday.
Not too long ago my husband and I went home to Michigan for our nephew’s wedding. We also spent time with family members on all sides. Two years ago we moved from Michigan to Blue Eye, Missouri. It was a calling of the Lord to leave all and go and learn to be a servant of the Lord.

Fear – we’ve all experienced it. Perhaps the enemy has you convinced that you will never be delivered. Maybe you have already resigned to living in anxiety. Well, Jesus said He came to set the captives free! That includes you and me and anything we are captive to — including fear.

Many of you have walked with the Lord for a long time and have learned to trust God through very difficult trials.
